Making Playdough

I have been making a bit of play dough.
This is how I made it:
2 mugs flour
1 mugs salt
4 tablespoons cream of tartar
4 tablespoons sunflower oil
blue food colouring

Mix flour, salt and cream of tartar. Add water and mix it up until smooth.
Add food colouring to get desired shade. Add oil. Cook it up stirring all the time until it is leaving the side of the pan.

Don't worry if it is lumpy, that will all smooth out in the kneading.
Don't worry about the pan it will come off really easily if left to soak for a bit.

Turn out mixture onto board to cool.
Knead like bread dough till nice and smooth.

Divide it up and keep in fridge between uses. It will last quite a few weeks.
